“Oh, my gosh. Turn around. I think I just saw a calf being born,” I said to my boyfriend as we cruised down an old country road that warm summer’s day some 35 years ago. I couldn’t believe my sheer luck at witnessing a birth at the exact moment we passed by that split-rail fence next to the road.

That’s the beauty of travelling by motorcycle – you’re right there in the moment, whatever that moment may be. It’s been said that in a car, you go to your destination and you return home. A motorcycle trip, however, is always an adventure.

If you’re itching to take a summer road trip, but don’t know how to start or where to go, there are a number of trip planning websites you can check out to help you prepare. Here are a couple of my favorites:

MotorcycleRoads.com

MotorcycleRoads.com began in 1998 to help bikers easily find quality motorcycle roads in whatever part of the country you’re interested in travelling to. The site not only gives you lists of roads to try, but also provides photographs and detailed descriptions of what you’ll see along the way, including roadside amenities and much more.

SundayMorningRides.com

Sunday Morning Rides is a site that offers motorcycle GPS ride maps and experiences for short and long distances by city or state – even international locales. I typed in Arizona and 22 scenic routes popped up. Plus, if you find a unique route you want to share with others, you can do it on this site.

OpenRoadJourney.com

Founded in 2006, OpenRoadJourney.com is focused on helping bikers find the best motorcycle roads in the world, based on the experiences of others. Like Sunday Morning Rides, this site also encourages you to share your best roads.
